Lyrics
Your love is colder than a foggy river
Rollin on a heart of stone
You left me stranded on this foggy river
Cold and helpless and alone

I knew someday that you would turn me down
I got worries on my mind
Yes I'm doomed to sail this foggy river
Till I leave my love behind

There's no tomorrow on this foggy river
Only memories linger on
A mist of sorrows fills this foggy river
Everything I had is gone

I can't escape this broken heart of mine
I've no freedom anymore
Heaven help me on this foggy river
Till I reach that distant shore
